Developer Massive Entertainment has not ruled out future plans for other platforms for their upcoming third-person online open-world title Tom Clancy's The Division, according to a post on their Twitter, giving hope to PC players.

In response to the question "will there be a PC version?", Massive revealed that while the focus is currently on the next-gen PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, the devs "are not ruling out any platforms for the future." Whether this means a PC version could be announced alongside the console platforms is unknown, but it does give us hope for the interesting title that sees a blend of survival and action in a city ravaged by a pandemic.

Ubisoft revealed the title at their E3 2013 press conference with a very interesting gameplay piece, which you can check out below. Taking place in a crumbling plague-infested New York city, players will be able to join squad-like groups to help complete what looked to be quest-like objectives as they stay alive against other players in somewhat DayZ like PvP.

No release date has yet been given for Tom Clancy's The Division, but hopefully it is sooner rather than later.

So is this an MMO? They say online, open world, persistent game... I think of that as an MMO. If it's an MMO then pings will prob suck for Aussies. Maybe traditional servers? Maybe player hosted, they have confirmed match making.

Think of it more as DayZ instead of an MMO?

They haven't explicitly called it an MMO, because an MMO instigates that you'll have a larger number of people on the screen at once then what has been shown. I would imagine it is similar to the likes of DayZ or Guild Wars, with separate servers or "towns" that will hold only a certain number of players.

What exactly does an MMO instigate, Eorl? :)

Loving how the new gen of consoles' move to x86 has suddenly made also releasing on PC so much more viable. In the end it will be interesting to see how many developers actually do end up releasing on PC where previously they wouldn't have bothered.

ubisoft usually does release on PC, which is why I find it odd that there's no pc release for this game yet.

Perhaps usually, but they're also the c**** who have basically declared war on PC gamers with all their DRM bulls*** and insinuated that all they do is pirate everything.

Some classy quotes from the creative director of I Am Alive (an Unbisoft console exclusive):
“We’ve heard loud and clear that PC gamers are b****ing about there being no version for them,

“It’s hard because there’s so much piracy and so few people are paying for PC games that we have to precisely weigh it up against the cost of making it."

Ubisoft are still clueless when it comes to PC because they historically have not made multiplayer a priority, so it ends up being a tacked-off afterthought that never gets the sort of critical mass needed to really drive sales.

I ignored this game completely at first assuming it was going to be another Tom Clancy brand whoring single player tacshooter but a few comments made me take a second look, at which point I saw PC was relegated to once again being a second class citizen and lost interest again.

The worst thing I have heard about this is that character customization is a big deal for this game, that's Ubisoft speak for lots of cash shop items.
